    I just checked my chargers to be sure and the iPad mini and the iPhone are supplied with the same charger. There should be no problem charging your iPad mini with an iPhone charger.

    Hi scifan57
    Thanks for your reply
    I understand that; no metter what is V and A value on both
    (mini's is 5v - 1A the other is 5,2v-2A)
    I'd be better off with both.
    What about charging from PC USB slot?


    Regards

    Your PC USB port will trickle (slow) charge your iPad, the iPad status bar will tell you that it's not charging but it really is.

    The small charger in your photo is the charger supplied with both the iPad mini and the iPhone at this time. My iPad mini charger and my iPhone charger are both 5 volts, 1amp.

    The short summary of my question was: Does it will be harfmfull for my iPad Mini to charge via 5,2 v - 2A adapter or via PC USB slot
    Is there any damage in my mini's battery in long time?

    Regards

    No, there is no chance of harming the battery in your iPad mini by using the larger adaptor. In fact, I se my iPad charger to charge everything, iPad, iPad mini, and iPhone 5.
